After looking at over 20 venues, we knew the Park Plaza was it when we first saw it. We liked that it was steeped in history as well as being visual stunning although it is not in the best neighborhood. The Park Plaza has been used (and is still extensively used) mostly for filming and large corporate events. They only started doing weddings recently. Their lack of inexperience in this area shows. The staff are not very well organized and do not communicate with each other. They fail to do things they promise (on both small things as well as big things). A wedding coordinator that you hire might help fill in the inadequacies of the existing staff there. In addition, the Park Plaza is privately owned and the owner is very unprofessional and will try to overcharge you wherever she can.
We loved our wedding but having to deal with the Park Plaza made for a stressful time even more difficult (both in the planning stages as well as the day of). If I had to do it over again, I would NOT have had my wedding ceremony and reception there.
